self etching primers don't work on plastic. Adhesion promoter is better.

Thanks for the post. Looking to black out the grill on my 2014 GC Summit ECO Diesel.

Re: HOW TO: 2014 Grill ring removal

Since the Altitude is about to be released and it comes with black grille rings they parts should be available for purchase shortly.
I doubt they'll cost much more than $50 so I'd just wait it out and buy OEM.

Good write up for an alternative though.

an OEM option would be nice but my hunch is that the parts will be quite a bit more than $50. The 7 stock chrome rings were closer to $200 if I remember correctly.

Re: HOW TO: 2014 Grill ring removal

jbjones85…your guidance was spot on. Got the tools you mentioned and I had it done in about 90 minutes. Was definitely faster on the last 4.

Anyone have any guidance on how the pull the honey cone grill without doing a complete front number tear down…

Chrome Summit rings are $80 so id expect the black to be a little less.

Re: HOW TO: 2014 Grill ring removal

Is it easier if I remove the bumper?

to remove the rings.... probably.... but i can't imagine that removing the bumper is easier than just removing the rings.

Should have clarified that I'll be removing the bumper anyway, to take out the grill inserts
